Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zapp Powerful tool suited for the toughest jobs
Makita made a solid tool with this 7" angle grinder. I used a masonry grinding wheel with it to smooth out old mortar underneath old tile I removed from a concrete slab. This tool didn't even flinch and cut my estimated job time in half.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB06192 Great angle grinder - got the job done with ease!
I had ripped up the tile from my kitchen / bathroom leaving a bunch of quickset stuck to the concrete foundation. I struggled to figure out how to remove it so I could put down my wood floor in kitchen / install radient heat in bathroom floor.
This grinder with a diamond bit grinding wheel (http://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-7-in-24-Segment-Turbo-Cup-Grinding-Wheel-HD-TAW7024P1/202884372) removed the thinset with ease and I actually even leveled areas of my concrete floor that were uneven for easy cabinet installation.
Side note - be ready for a really dusty mess if attempting to do the same!!!!! Enclose the area and get good ventilation via fans

The only reason I bought this grinder was because the attachment I bought for removing flooring adhesive didn't fit the 9" grinder I already had. I ground away 170 sq. ft of cutback adhesive and hardly ever left off the trigger. The grinder was barley even warm after all of that work. This is now my go to machine for tough grinding jobs. Every time I buy a Makita power tool I wonder why I ever bought anything else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MOORES Awesomeness!!! Makita blows the competition away!
I bought this Makita heavy duty grinder, and it does it all. I bought this and sanded several houses with OSB plywood. It gets the subfloor smooth and level for laying any type of floor covering. I would highly recommend this to any of you do-it- yourselfers or hardcore professionals.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bob After learning the hard way through dewalts heavy duty I bought this makita. Can't beat the quality and what a difference working with this tool.
I purchased a Dewalt heavy duty grinder. Lasted 2 years and was repaired twice. Just burned up grinding epoxy off a patio. I only used the dewalt about 7 times each time grinding epoxy. This not much demand for a 7"grinder or shouldn't be. The Makita is a dream come true. Quick grinding,low heat and smoooooth. I should have known. Get this grinder and you won't be disappointed. Runnnn from a dewalt!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BTJR NICE.!!!
I was on a job when my grinder went so rushed to Home Depot, and grabbed this one. I grind down Subfloor in new houses to get them ready for flooring, and this machine doesn't miss a beat. It does get hot, but it doesn't seem to bother it one bit, its well built.
